US cop body cam maker says it won't ship face-recog tech in its kit? Due to ethics? Did we slip into a parallel universe?

Note this is only possible because Axon is in a privileged position within the market, it has a near monopoly on this equipment and cozy relationships with police departments.

If anyone were realistically placed to compete, they'd see this as an opportunity. But it'd take a competitor at least a couple of years to build themselves into that sort of position, and long before then Axon will see them coming and, presumably, reassess their ethics evidence.
